Shifting houses is a project in itself be it to the Next Street or next town. Moving houses overseas is a project that takes a lot more control and organizing than when moving within the city limits or within a certain geographical region. Here are a few pointers to remember when you want to move homes next to a foreign land.

Setting up First

Before moving all your belongings to an unknown country, come in a new days prior to the moving day to ensure everything is in place. If you do not have anyone to bring all your stuff for you later on, you can fly in and ship your stuff in at a later date through the many international moving in Indonesia now on the market. Even if your employer promises an apartment, it is best to take a look at it first before bringing everything, especially if you are moving with a family in tow.

Shipping and Air Flying

The two above mentioned methods are the easiest and the only ways of getting your stuff down. When deciding between the two, think about the urgency and time frame in which you need it, the budget you have available and also the nature of the items that are being transported. In international moving there are certain rules and regulations in place for moving various items and various degrees of care taken when handling cargo. Make sure to do your homework and mark the boxes with the proper signs and symbols before handing them over to the customs so as to not be left with a box full of broken glass or rotting food. Also, think twice before moving pets from one place to the other. While air flying is very difficult for them, so is being shipped in a cage for a month.

Organize your Packing

This is a golden rule for all forms of packing and isn’t something unique to moving overseas. Maximizing the allocated space is essential so as to save quite a bit of money when flying or shipping things overseas. Thus, when moving homes, make sure to pack only the most important and essential items and none of the consumer goods you can purchase from that country itself. You may have just bought a state of the art refrigerator before moving but the cost of shipping included would give you enough to buy two of them in the new place. If you do not hope to return, sell these goods off online or auction it rather than taking them with you.
